Lateness to School

As of Monday 21 June, students that are late to school without a reasonable excuse will be given a 30 minute detention after school on the same day, where they will have to fill in their Punctuality Reflection Form.   

The Education Act 1996 states that all learners should attend school regularly and punctually: This means that learners must attend school, on time by law and parents and carers are legally responsible for making sure this happens.

We will assist you in ensuring your child is on time to school by sending you a text message when your child is late, and will therefore have to complete the sanction. 

This tweak to policy is a precursor to a wider review of our Attendance and Punctuality Policy, and we will welcome your support on this matter.
